I love rivalries, so I was pretty psyched to learn the Caps aren’t huge fans of the Flyers.
It doesn’t seem personal. The Flyers are just a physical team and of course, Flyer fans are pretty rough, too. It seems like the Capitals don’t appreciate the Flyer experience.
I’m not sure Washington has to worry about Philadelphia too much tonight, though. The Flyers are on the road trip from hell, leaving a trail of injured bodies across North America.
I’m glad the NHL went back to every team playing every other team during the regular season, but the conference-heavy schedule sure bruised some feelings and built-up some resentment. And sadly, those are two ingredients for great hockey.
